The thrillers of Edgar Wallace, one of the twentieth century’s most successful crime novelists, have been widely adapted for film and television – the most memorable of which being the Edgar Wallace Mysteries series, made at Merton Park Studios during the first half of the 1960s. A noir-esque series, it updates some of the author’s stories to more contemporary settings, blending classic B-movie elements with a distinctly British feel. Unseen for decades, these dramas have been freshly transferred from the original film elements specifically for this release.

This sixth volume includes top-notch performances from Peter Barkworth, Nigel Davenport, Faith Brook, Bernard Lee and Jeremy Kemp, and features scripts by Roger Marshall, Jimmy Sangster, Robert Banks Stewart and novelist Arthur La Bern.
